Starz is feeling pretty good about the new ASH VS EVIL DEAD series, having granted a second season renewal even before the series had premiered.
Executive producers and THE EVIL DEAD original filmmakers Sam Raimi, Rob Tapert and Bruce Campbell will return for the second season with executive producer and showrunner Craig DiGregorio. Campbell will continue as Ash Williams, the aging lothario and chainsaw-handed monster hunter. Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) is also returning as Ruby, a mysterious figure who believes Ash is the cause of the Evil outbreaks.
“One season isn’t enough to satisfy the fans’ two decade-long appetite for more Ash,” said Carmi Zlotnik, Managing Director of Starz. “The early fan and press support, along with the international broadcaster demand for more story have made it clear that the adventures of Ash Williams can’t end with season one.”
ASH VS EVIL DEAD premieres on Saturday, October 31 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on Starz.
